Judge Throws Out Keystroke logger case

According to an article at Security Focus, a judge has thrown out the case against an employee that placed a hardware keystroke logger on his employers computer system. The judge ruled that the Federal Wiretap statute is in regard to interstate transmissions and this was a local logger. Since the keystroke logger collected everything including emails, I’m a bit surprised the judge wasn’t willing to go along with the Federal case. It will be interesting to read the case writeup on this one.
